EGTV: Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning

Exclusive trailer.

A dazzling CGI E3 showreel was the last glimpse gamers had of Mythic Entertainment's anticipated Warhammer MMO – and the US firm has now released the full, extended version of the Age of Reckoning trailer, which is showing exclusively this morning on Eurogamer TV.

The updated footage boasts almost an extra minute's worth of slickly produced action, building up to a suitably dramatic scrap between the powerful forces of Order and Chaos.

Set in Games Workshop's cult fantasy universe, the hook of Mythic's latest online RPG is: 'war is everywhere'. As producer Lance Robertson previously explained: "This world, dominated by force of arms and magic, provides a wonderfully rich setting for an MMO. Our game will give player entrance into this world to experience the epic nature of war and the glory of battle. Every aspect of the game, including PvE content, is geared towards the greater war in some important way."

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be fully playable next week in Germany at the Leipzig Games Convention, where we're assured new features will be revealed.

The game will be published in Europe by GOA in late 2007 – in the meantime don't miss the Orc-tacular new trailer now showing on Eurogamer TV.
